People outside Japan: Oh, no Fukushima had a meltdown, it's scary in Japan, let's not go there.
People in Japan: WTF are those people talking about?
In another poll, though, around 45 pct of Japanese polled continue to support the use of nuclear energy and 71 want modernization:
A third poll shows that around three-quarters of Japanese surveyed want a phase-out:
which is close to the results of the first poll.
Some more surveys:
"Poll: Most Japanese Wary of Restarting Nuclear Plants"
"Poll: 81% of Japanese don’t trust government on Fukushima"
In which case, most Japanese probably share the same sentiments as people in other countries.
Well, if the surveys (lol surveys) say so, can't deny that.
All I have is anecdotal evidence from friends and relatives who live in Japan who all are immensely amused, without exception, by US mainstream media's overplaying of the Fukushima disaster.

I think there is urgency for the Senate to investigate the US$ 100 million cash "donation" of the Office of the President to Japan. Did not Noynoy expect to gather at least US $ 500 million in Japanese investments for that trip but instead came home a fifth of that amount poorer by surprise?
I bet it got something to do with his office meddling in the Fukishima disaster that contradicted the publicized assurances of the Filipino Staff on Lopez-controlled TV Stations. The real culprit is the attempt of our TV Stations to conceal the Fukishima disaster problem and twist the issues, which the Lopez controlled network in support of this administration seems to do quite often out of bad habit. The instant, unplanned donation given by Noynoy in Japan is another blind item in the budget that dwarfs the unusual P34 million release of funds to the communist ABB or that of the few millions given to Muslim rebels. This amount of US$ 100 million is perhaps more than the collective annual repatriations of Filipino OFWs in Japan.
The Senate should investigate a link between the Lopez clan, the Foreign Affairs Department decision to place a Lopez as ambassador to Japan, the electric power contractor of Fukishima, the political move of the Malacanang to send Filipinos home despite the contradictory message of the Filipino Fukishima Daichi Nuclear Plant staff that there is nothing to worry about. Was our president paying the price for what is clearly a situation created by local media? Do we have other obligations to the Japanese than what we are made to believe? Since the Lopez's are local electric power franchisees, are they directly linked to the nuclear facility as supplier? Lastly, are Filipino taxpayers made to pay the price for the bungle up of the Lopez group, since the announcement was the Japanese government would file for damages against those responsible for the criminal DESERTION of the Fukishima Daichi Nuclear Plant facility?
At the rate our national funds are blown away in the absence of budgetary planning and controls this country may soon find itself crippled and wasted the moment a calamity as massive as the Japanese Earthquake hits us. By all indications, such fortuitous events may take place sooner than we think yet what do we expect from the Executive Branch?
kumusta na ba ngayon yung ibang mga nuclear plants sa japan?
